About this show

Like a comet that burns too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock 'n' roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Fueled by such unforgettable songs as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Piece of My Heart," "Mercedes Benz," "Cry Baby," and "Summertime," plus a remarkable cast featuring Mary Bridget Davies (Broadway's original "Janis," a performance that earned her a Tony Award nomination), A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Joplin and her biggest musical influences — icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith.
